COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Should anybody ever ask us which two breweries in the craft beer world are the two manliest, we wouldn’t hesitate for a second before naming Tampa’s Cigar City and our very own Amager Bryghus. Whenever the two breweries meet, their main brass will engage in the manly sport of arm wrestling - be it in the brewhouse, in the tap room or in a random bar. All friendly playing around of course, and always with the same outcome: a humiliating defeat for the Tampa boys. Not only will our big man, head brewer Jacob Storm, beat them but so will fellow founder and CEO Morten Lundsbak - and both with right and left hand. Last time we met the Tampa boys, they pulled out saying they didn’t really care much for arm wrestling anymore. Nevertheless this beer was originally brewed and released by Cigar City under the name "Top Roll", apparently the name of a secret arm wrestling technique all employees at Cigar City must now learn to keep their job. All in the faint hope that maybe, just maybe one day one of them will beat an Amager boy. At Amager we shrug, and smile politely and wish them nothing but the best of luck.

Inhopwetrust (22) - Venezia, ITALY - NOV 15, 2017
Ok imperial porter. Niente di veramente spettacolare, ma bella tostata con la liquirizia che si percepisce eccome. Cioccolato, salsa di soia, caramello e un bel finale torrefatto. Manca solo un po' di complessità

nearbeer (5603) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2017
500 ml. with no bottling date. Pours ebony with a sticky disc of foam. Aroma of cocoa, graham cracker, bread, sea salt and a bit of coffee. Tastes of licorice, dark chocolate, bread and caramel. Some fig, soy sauce and black strap molasses in later sips. A hint of cherry in the aftertaste as well. Medium-plus mouthfeel with smooth low-medium fizz. No sign of the abv.

simontomlinson (589) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Tight, beige head stayed on a jet black, lightly carbonated body. Rich aroma of dark fruits, dark berries, malt & demerara. Medium to full body. Creamy texture with a sparkling finish. Cloying on the back. Creamy malt tastes with bitter underripe fruit, over ripe fruit, grape, citrus, coffee, milk & dark sugar. Complex but Tremendous

Pours dark with light head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is licorice and hops. Taste is chocolate malt with a hint of nutmeg. Finish is all licorice. A very easy sipper.

500 ml bottle. BB 09/2018. (Uba & Humal) Tallinn, Estonia. Black color with a small light tan head. Roasted malt, licorice and dryness in the aroma. Oily. The flavor is dry roasted malt, licorice, alcohol, oil and dryness. Strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coffee, some orange and sugar aroma. Pitch black, medium sized brown head. Too sweet, hints of iron, lots of chocolate and forest fruit. Full bodied, creamy, flat. //bottle from Hoppiness

josanguapo (1922) - SPAIN - SEP 29, 2017
From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Green Cat, then Bad End. Notorius, pleasant and not excessive roastyness,with a smooth body that hides the abv really well and maybe light vanilla and licorice notes

Pretty porter, it has a scala of tastes to offer. The most remarkable one is the note of liquorice, which gives a nice salty aftertaste. I was familiar with sweet, bitter and sour in ales, but salt is a first for me and actually it doesn't dissapoint in a light touch! There are better porters and stouts, but this is a potential grower. It is different for sure.

alteregoo (1746) - Kalisz, POLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Piana średnio obfita, beżowa, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. W aromacie czekolada i lukrecja, w tle kawa zbożowa. Smak cukrowo słodki, podobnie jak w zapachu dominuje mleczna czekolada, kawa, lukrecja i popiołowość. Dość wysoka jak na porter, tytoniowa goryczka, niskie do średniego, drobne i poszczypujące wysycenie, półpełne, lepkie w odbiorze. Ładnie schowany alkohol, który przypomina bardziej pikantność niż rozgrzewanie.
Piwo troszkę bez historii, ładnie ułożone, gładkie, ale nieco mdłe. Wydaje mi się, że spora ilość lukrecji nie do końca tu zagrała...
